Newcastle United has struck a deal on Japan global striker Yoshinori Muto's transfer from Mainz, the English Premier League club announced Friday.
"Yes. We did this business with Muto because we needed to do something more".
Sky Sports report that a deal has been agreed between both clubs, as well as a contract between Mitrovic and the London side, and now only a successful medical is all that stands between the Serbian striker and a return Fulham.
Woman, her two great-grandchildren found dead in California fire
Meanwhile, about 120 miles (200 kilometers) southwest of Redding, two blazes prompted mandatory evacuations in Mendocino County. The air is thick with the smell of smoke and chemicals, and the smoldering remains are still too hot to sift through.
Mitrovic, in order to complete his part of the deal, left the Newcastle United training camp, in Portugal, to journey to Craven Cottage.
The 26-year-old worldwide has 20 goals and 10 assists in the Bundesliga for Mainz (8 and 4 respectively last season), and was also a member of Japan's World Cup squad in Russian Federation, featuring in the group match against Poland.
Instead, Newcastle United opted to bring on Adam Armstrong for Joselu half-way through the second half. "He has done well in the Bundesliga, so we're talking about a striker that's doing well in the last few years at global level".
